filling in for steph with chris and jim and jacki at the l.a. bureau. we have a call from georgia featuring the lovefest of barack obama and hillary clinton. hi there patricia. you're on "the stephanie miller show." >> caller: hi, good morning. i was just calling to express how i felt the interview was a great expression of how two adversaries can come together for the common good and rise above their disagreements for the betterment of america. >> john: i agree. it was most inspiring. >> it really was. how everyone keeps saying it is an endorsement for her presidency. i don't think it was. i think it was an example for our kids. i know my 14-year-old daughter took that away that how they bitterly fought and how in the end, what they disagreed on, came together to work toward the betterment of our country and it is such a wonderful example of what real democracy should be. differing ideas coming together for the greater good. >> john: i couldn't agree more. you stated it beautifully. thank you for the call. it is interesting. i thought one of the best moments of it was hillary and

's positive. let's look at what he had to say. he came out for what he calls comprehensive immigration reform. it was at a speech in las vegas. he said the bipartisan plan put forward by eight senators was in line with the principles he's for, which is very interesting. bipartisan approach. let's listen. here he is. >> but the principles are pretty straightforward. first, i believe we need to stay focused on enforcement. that means continuing to strengthen security at our borders. it means cracking down more forcefully on businesses that knowingly hire undocumented workers. we need to implement a national system that allows businesses to quickly and accurately verify someone's employment status. second, we have to deal with the 11 million individuals who are here illegally. we all agree that these men and women should have to earn their way to citizenship. but for comprehensive immigration reform to work, it must be clear from the outset that there is a pathway to citizenship. >> okay. your strength is in politics. went to a largely hispanic high school in las vegas -- >> you wouldn't know th

nation's ideals and calls for progress in face of divisions. chicago tribune. obama calls for collective action. l.a. times, obama uses inauguration to spotlight policy pledges. politico, obama testifies to the power of government. boston globe, marking the start of second term obama calls for unity and action. john, you were out front there. your take on this speech and kind of what you thought. >> we knew going in there was going to be a call for common ground on certain issues, not on every issue. the president feels he needs to take the lead on certain issues in his agenda that he wants to get pushed through, taxes, immigration and the like. but other issues he believes that there is room for cooperation. what you really have here though, bret, is the intersection of ideologies. you have one party is saying that they are promoting the idea of individualism and pulling yourself up from your bootstraps to become whatever the american dreams allows you to have. on the other side of the fence, the idea of the collective working to make life better. if they want to get anything done they

of what this debate is all about. let's go to teresa, joining us from north las vegas nevada. the democrat line. caller: good morning. i wanted to call in support of the president and democrats. i am a progressive and in independent thinker. i do not think you should use the 14th amendment, unless it comes to a really economic crash. i am for raising the debt ceiling. i believe that we need to pay our bills. i have to pay my bills. if i do not pay my credit card bills, my credit rating goes down. my credit score goes down. and i pay more in interest in the future. i think it is very irresponsible of these tea party republicans to hold the country hostage. there are other issues that can be negotiated for spending and raising revenues and the debt ceiling should not be a part of it. host: ok, thank you for calling. here is the editorial cartoonist of the post. the idea of minting a single coin valued at $1 trillion. using that to increase the debt limit. a number of stories saying that basically, this is not going to happen. his is what is reclined -- this -- what ezra kline writes he point

some of his proposals in a news conference and in a speech in las vegas, so this really is an example of the bipartisan senate gang of eight, so-called, calling themselves. and lay down a marker and show that congress hasn't been ignoring this, and president has not dealing with it in his first term. it does have the path to citizenship. some critics say it amounts to amnesty. first, securing the border, whether that's a fence or a wall or uses technology instead, has always been a real point of contention, they would reduce the overstayed visa, a problem. 40% of the illegal immigrants are overstaying their visas and implement an employee verification system, e-verify, to make sure illegal aliens can't find work. if that happens there would be a guest worker program that would make it possible for immigrants to cross the border and come and take low paying jobs and institute and issue green cards to immigrants who come here with major degrees, technology degrees, post doctorate degrees and things of that nature. of the 11 million current illegal immigrants, for them to get rights to s

brown filling in for jenna lee. jon: i'm jon scott. president obama on his way to las vegas where he will try to rally support for the plan while setting out proposals of his own. the bipartisan plan unveiled yesterday calls for a path to citizenship and immigration overhaul, employment verification and worker programs. let's talk about it with bob cusack, the managing editor of "the hill." a lot of people might be confused by the fact that senators came out with one plan yesterday, the president comes out with a plan today. what's the political gamesmanship, i guess, that's going on here, bob? >> well, you have a lot of senators who want to have a hand in this, and so whether it's the judiciary committee chairman, patrick leahy, who's not part of this group, senator marco rubio who might run for president in 2016, there is, i mean, this is a senate development, but we've got a long way to go. it's got to get through the senate, it's going to be a slew of amendments, maybe 100 amendments on the senate floor, and then they've got to merge these bills. and remember, in 2007 president g

of california, who just a couple of days ago, introduced this assault weapons ban legislation. and wayne lapierre, the nra's executive vice president. these two will face one another wednesday during a senate judiciary hearing, according to the website, called what should america do about gun violence. but, it will feel like debate deja vu for capitol hill watchers because those two run opposite sides, this was back in the early 1990s when this first assault weapons ban passed. that, as you know, has since expired. their arguments are coming back to life. we went into the archive and found feinstein and lapierre from two decades ago. >> you also, at some point, have got to say, enough is enough. otherwise when the nra will not say that you should not permit the civilian sale of bazookas, what we're talking about is a weapon crafted for war, that floats around the streets of our cities, that puts our police in a position of being outgunned by the bad guys, that has kids killing kids with them. >> more regulations on honest people that a million times a year honest people use a gun in this co

anything. there is no blood oath. it is that is who i am going to be meeting with. but i am going to call it as i see it. host: senator angus king, justin is on the phone, las vegas. caller: can you support earmarks as a way to get congressmen to talk to each other again? guest: earmarks and pork are in the same category. the idea of these tiny things going into a larger appropriations bill that nobody knows about or sees i do not think is a good idea. i think this process should be opened. there should be a justification for it. it should be part of an open process. the second part of your question, getting congressman to talk to each other is really important. one of the problems here -- i do not know if you're watching earlier, but i mentioned that i work here almost 40 years ago -- is relationships. one of the things that has changed is that the airline service is so much better, everyone goes home for the weekend. most senators' families are back home. the relationships are not built. that is one of the things that makes it hard to get anything done. i am convinced that this fiscal c
